Archaeology Notes

NO21NE 12 273 174

There is no trace of the mansion house of Kinnaird, which lay a little to the north of Inchrye, although a pigeon house, a park-line of elderly trees on either side of the public road and two chestnut trees indicate its where-abouts.

The teinds of Kinnaird were granted to Lindores Abbey in the 9th year of the reigh on William the Lion (1165-1214) and in 1630 Charles I confirmed the lands to Sir James Balfour, Lord Lyon King of Arms to Charles I and II and author of 'Annales of Scotland', who resided there. J W Taylor 1875; A Laing 1876; Reg Magni Sig Reg Scot 1984; Information from Balfour Ms (held in Advocates' Library)

No further information. The pigeon house mentioned by Taylor is probably the one at NO 2755 1773 (NO21NE 7).

Visited by OS (W D J) 13 May 1970.
